Transit of Venus

About the Artist

Transit of Venus is the recording project of Kristie Addison who spent the last few years as the front-woman and songwriter for Amperzahn while writing for Transit of Venus as a secret-side-project and a personal venture into home recording.

In 2008 Kristie shifted her focus completely to Transit of Venus and began recording an album worth of material. Tired of working alone, she called on an eclectic range of musician friends to get involved, including Tory Staples (Jonny Love, Chris Reed, ex Battle Circus), Mike Johns (ex Revolution Brother), Robin Liu ad Chris Chunk (Infinite Flying Kick), Dave Edtmaier (Miscreant), Harry Champion (The Exiles, Josh Lees) and James Dudley (Plum Green band). The Bitter Sweet Love EP release is a collection of songs from these sessions.

It was recorded in Kristie's bedroom and The Manor Studios, with additional tracking at Miscreant Recordings where it was mixed and mastered.

Early 2009 saw the formation of a fantastic live band who's performances are jam packed full of energy and no shortage of audience rocking tunes. Mid 2009 saw Transit of Venus land a deal with indie label Black Doris Music, release the 'Bitter Sweet Love EP' and drop their first single from the EP 'Meat Market' with a video to accompany.

Future plans include a full length album release, more singles and video release, with a host of live performances through-out the year to wrap your ears around.
